Next-Gen Jeep Wrangler Probably Getting a 2.0L Turbo Four

When the next-generation Jeep Wrangler debuts, a new turbocharged four-cylinder cranking out around 300 horsepower is likely to be an option.

According to Automotive News, a source inside the company has confirmed the existence of the new direct-injected inline four-cylinder engine with a twin-scroll turbocharger and an aluminum block that makes 300 horsepower.

Codenamed Hurricane, the engine will be built at the Trenton Engine Complex in Michigan, which currently builds the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine. FCA has already announced a $75 million investment into the complex to build the new engine.

When the new Wrangler debuts, this turbo four will likely be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and sold as the economic option. Eventually, a diesel and hybrid powertrain are also expected to join the Wrangler’s portfolio, once again in a play to increase fuel economy.

I just love when they make that statement "to increase fuel economy"
When in reality it has already been done over in Europe and that includes most Ford vehicles as well that can provide 65+ mpg. :/
Truly fuel-efficient cars currently available in Europe banned from US market; Americans getting ripped off -

Hopefully with the four banger they engine bay will be big enough to still swap a HEMI V8.

At least my hope.
